Sexy Red Lips for Fall!


Over the next few months, I'll be highlighting 2015 Fall trends perfect for anyone!Processed with Moldiv

First up, the infamous sexy red lip. Ever try on a red lipstick and it just didn't quite work? When shopping, keep in mind all red lipsticks are not created equal. Finding the right shade for your skin tone can be confusing. When buying lipsticks, it's important you understand your skin tone and the undertones of lipsticks so it works for you. I have included a few swatches and descriptions for my go-to favorites.  Also listed is a guide to helping you find the perfect red lipstick for your skin tone. Please keep in mind this is just a guide (there are no definitive rules to makeup). If you love it, ROCK IT! Nothing is sexier than confidence.

1. Armani 504 - lip stain, a berry red, silky, will dry matte (must be worn with liner it will bleed recommend Mac Cherry liner) not drying, lasts forever
2. Armani 400 - lip stain , must be worn with liner to keep from bleeding, red, feels silky, matte but is not drying as above Armani has the best lip stain formula
3. Mac Ruby Woo (both Mac Cherry liner and with Nightmoth liner pictured)  -Darkened great for fall as well. I lined just the outer corner of my mouth to create an ombré affect with Nightmoth liner.
Both Mac Ruby Woo and Riri Woo are beautiful. Ruby Woo is a little dryer but the colors don’t look all that different in my opinion.
4. Nars Cruella -brownish red (beautiful fall color) Matte color
5. Nyx Pure Red - Orangish red, good drugstore alternative

Smokey Eye Tutorial


Follow my step-by-step instructions below to create this sultry look:Processed with Moldiv

  1. Prime Lids.
  2. Place black gel liner as base on mobile lid space ONL. I used Benefit Gel Liner in Black and blended with my finger.
  3. Working quickly before gel base dries, blend crease and area slightly above crease with a neutral brown color blend any harsh edges with a blending brush. I used Soft Brown by Mac.
  4. Take another transition shade like a darker brown and place in the crease. I used Brownscript by Mac using the same blending brush.
  5. Place black shadow on top of gel base. I used black shadow from Lorac Pro Palette.
  6. Using the same blending brush without adding any product blend crease and any harsh edges.
  7. I used same Benefit Gel Liner in Black for winged liner.
  8. Place gel liner in bottom waterline.
  9. Using small pencil brush take same black shadow and run it underneath the bottom waterline.
  10. Blend black shadow with the same blending brush just on the edges.
  11. Lashes- Shining Star lashes by Eylureand VegasNay (can be found at Target) I always use Duo lash glue **** key to applying lashes is to wait 30 seconds to a minute and once glue has been applied to allow glue to get tacky. VOILA!
  12. Add a little shimmer to the inner corner for brightness. I used Becca Highlighter in Opal.
